A few users have sent in links to this news item (or others covering the same story):
The music industry has turned its big legal guns on Internet music-swappers including a 12-year-old New York City girl who thought downloading songs was fun.

Brianna LaHara said she was frightened to learn she was among the hundreds of people sued yesterday by giant music companies in federal courts around the country.
Just when they thought they couldn't get any more bad press, I bet.

How about i pay them 2 dollars for every song i download, not 500? That's about all they're worth. Most are worth less.

THEY PAID FOR KAZZA!! LOL!!

But seriously may RIAA win this case as a clear message needs to be sent to all little girls downloading music. YOU WILL GET CAUGHT!

Ok RIAA needs to get with the times it needs to work out how to control and profit from this new technology not try and kill it as that is impossible.

Isn't there a way around that but, gettin sued, then counter sueing for allowing the record company to release media which can then be placed on the net, which in turn can be d/led!!

This has got to be the funniest quote in the news this morning:

"We don't condone copyright infringement, but it's time for the RIAA's winged monkeys to fly back to the castle and leave the Munchkins alone"


That's a group of p2p companies which have said that they'll pay the $2000 fine.

Firstly as if you would use kazza. That's just an open invitation to inviting viruses and trojans to your home. Secondly, it was because she downloaded Metallica songs.. something that wasn't mentioned because it would give a bad rapt to that cruddy band. Who'd listen to them anyway.

Besides the point... they aren't going to be able to stop all file sharing applications.. *hint* msn, yahoo, etc *hint* and if they do stop that well.. the internet is going to be a very boring place.
